The Friends of Montgomery Library announce the Annual Spring Tea fundraiser will be held Sunday, May 19 from 1- 3 p.m. at the Montgomery Senior Center.

This year’s theme is April Showers Brought May Flowers. There will be a catered luncheon, raffle baskets, games, door prizes. The speaker: is Rebecca Bulene on the Pollinated Garden, Butterfly Gardens. Tickets are $40 each and are available at the Montgomery Library or by mail to: Joan Buck Smith, 364 Goodwill Rd. Montgomery, NY 12549.

The Montgomery Senior Center Book Club met on April 24 to discuss “The Bonesetter’s Daughter.” Although the members present agreed that Amy Tan wrote many enjoyable books, they thought that this was not one of them. Next they will move on to “The Maid” by Nita Prose. This short Who-Do-It received high praise on Goodreads and Amazon and is sure to be a page-turner.

Please join us on May 15, 10 a.m., at the Senior Center. All are welcome. Also from the Senior Center: A two hour NYC lunch sight seeing Cruise will be held on Thursday July 18, 2024. The cost is $90 per person and the bus will leave Montgomery Senior Center at 9:30 a.m. For additional details please call 845-457-9367.

Take me out to the ball game! A trip to see the Yankee vs Mets game will be held on Wednesday, July 23 for a 7 pm game. Ticket and transportation is only $100 per person.

The New York Forward grant that the Village of Montgomery received is in the amount of $4.5 million. Mayor Mike Hembury is one of the co-sponsors of this committee and he wants to let the public know that on May 20 at 6 p.m. at the Montgomery Senior Center they will have the second meeting in reference to this grant.

The New York Forward committee is looking for ideas from the public as to where this money can be spent to beautify and benefit the village. I say fix the sidewalks to make it safer for the residents and visitors.

All are welcome to participate in the Josh Depew Pickle Ball Tournament. It will be held in the Veterans Memorial Park in the Village of Montgomery on Sunday June 23 at 10 a.m. Registration is $80 per team. Visit their Facebook page for more info. All proceeds will be donated to the Bobell family to help with medical expenses.

If you can’t make it to the event donations can be made thru Venmo to help the Bobell family through these very trying times.
